Schizosaccharomyces pombe asymetry?

I need some information considering the cellular division in S. pombe.
Generaly it is described as binary fission result in two identical
doughter cells. However there are some information about asymetrical
division of S. pombe cells for example in the case of mating type
swiching. Moreover some data report that progresive asymetry in cell
diameter and volume can be observed during the repeated divisions of
individual S. pombe cells. Does it mean that S. pombe division could be
asymetrical (at least under some circumstances)?
Thank you in advance for help
